Researchers examine leading reasons for divorce

Texas couples who get a divorce might be more likely to do so because they have lost respect for one another or their communication has broken down than because of a behavioral issue like infidelity. This was one of the findings of a study that appeared in the Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy.

Advocates ask prosecutors to exclude racist police testimony

Criminal justice reform advocates in Texas and across the country are calling on district attorneys and prosecutors' offices to exclude more police from giving testimony in criminal cases. While juries and judges often give great weight to evidence presented by the police, there have been multiple cases of wrongful convictions involving false, inaccurate or deliberately misleading police testimony. In an effort to prevent further wrongful convictions, advocates have written letters to officials across the country urging them to expand the lists that they use to exclude police testimony that may be biased, corrupt or based on lies.

Social media cautions during divorce

When people in Texas are going through a divorce, they may want to take care with their social media usage. It can be tempting to many individuals to share or even overshare online, but people may find that their path to divorce is eased by protecting their privacy. Social media is a major part of modern life, but it can have a range of effects on a marriage or divorce. Indeed, some people even blame Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for their decision to divorce. While most conflicts over social media reflect other underlying issues, studies show that an increase in social media usage is correlated with an increase in marital dissatisfaction.
